Peninsula Community Library (PCL) is well on their way to that beautiful new building on the corner of Center Road and Island View Road. PCL Board President Heatherlyn Johnson Reamer says they plan to break ground this fall. Details forthcoming.
Last week, the library celebrated reaching $2 Million of their $2.5 Million fundraising goal with a lovely picnic where great fun was had by all. Of course, it was on the site of the new building.
Tom’s Food Markets, a major donor to the new library, provided a picnic of chicken, potato salad, slaw and cake, with hot dogs and chips for the kids. Happy music was provided by the Happy Time Banjos.
Take a look at some photos of the fun event below, and learn more about the new library here. An easy way to be part of the history of the library is by buying a brick! Learn more here.
